      I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer on 1/15. My gynecologist recommend Dr Friedman as the best surgeon, and she was right. The surgery was done couple days later, beautiful job. Since then I visit Dr Friedman once every three months for follow up, and honestly I can't wait till the next visit. I have never met a doctor who care for his patients as much as Dr Friedman. He is positive and sincere, an amazing doctor and human being.He saved my life, I trust him100% and I highly recommend him

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
